Nice blog!

There's this guy from Iloilo in Ebay.ph who sells 19th century coins (Queen Isabella and King Alfonso) that were circulated in the Philippines.

These are sold to as low as P500 per coin. You've got to check them out.

Thanks for dropping by! Wow, I'm glad someone actually visited my blog. Thanks for the info. P500 is quite cheap for Spanish coins but as a student, P500 is a week's allowance. Hehehe...

Arnold said...

Yeah it's really cheap but I think the value of the coin depends on its condition. The "Reina Isabela" coin sold for P500 was a bit "faded" already although the Spanish Coat of Arms on the reverse side is still a bit visible. Hehe..

Anyway, this same guy from eBay also sells a set of Philippine Coins during the American era. A set includes 10 pieces of both 50 and 25 cents; so all in all 20 coins. He's from Iloilo City I guess so it's very much a big advantage on your part to meet him, hehe...

mandi said...

was wondering if anyone could tell me what a 1998 coin with jose rizal was worth email me at thudthudthud2004@yahoo.com if u have any information on the coin in question thanks

Rex said...

Thanks for dropping by. The 1998 1 peso coin featuring Jose Rizal is ,unfortunately, not worth more than its face value. In fact, it is still in wide circulation today.

Very interesting blog huh! Am glad you allow others to know more about our Philippine money!

Arnold Carl said...

Nice.. Now you have the coins issued during the American colonial period.

steve said...

Greetings! I like your blog.

I found an old American note in with some family pictures; the only date on it is 1922.

Feel free to download these files if you'd like to add them to your site. I didn't see this bill in your collection.

Rex said...

Thank you Steve! I have posted your scan.

Anyone else willing to contribute is most welcome.

BOYET PEPOA said...

Howdy!

Arnold carl be sure to determine the authenticity of that Spanish coin, their are lots of counterfeit especially rare ones.

keep up!

Rex said...

Thanks Boyet! I look forward to your contributions. If possible, please scan them at 300 dpi resolution. You may email me at rexdelsar [at] gmail [dot] com. A lot of coins and banknotes are still missing from this blog. Let us hope to at least approach the completion of this online collection.

nice blog. its very helpful for my little brother's money collection.

i would like to add a commemorative money bill.

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a130/bechiu/erap01.jpg http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a130/bechiu/erap02.jpg

it was posted on eBay.ph for PhP 250,000!

as i quote:

[i]Up for sale is a President Joseph "ERAP" Estrada GOLD P1000 Commemorative Bill. This was issued to honor the 100 year celebration of the Philippine Independence. This is an extremely rare collectible given by Erap to his closest relatives and supporters. You can't get this anywhere. It's gold plated and features the face of Erap at the front with the serial number of the bill as JE6301998. It comes with a special case with the seal of the presidency in front and has "his excellency, Joseph Estrada, Pangulo ng Pilipinas" printed inside. [/i]

Entrepinoy Bank said...

A very impormative blog. Do you have an information about Boholano paper bills.

Thanks.

Rex said...

^^So far we only have one Boholano paper bill in this website, a 10 centavo guerilla note.

El Sailor said...

I have 2 five pesos notes with a 1949 date at the base of the "Central Bank Of The Philippines" seal. How a value be established?

Anonymous said...

I have a question about the newer Bank notes, when did the date start to appear on the Bangko Sentral Ng Philipinas series bank notes, and when did they stop making 5 Piso and 10 Piso bank notes

Kenji Mercado said...

Mr. Rex,

I'm Kenji Mercado from Baler,Aurora. im interested in collecting coins and banknotes. uhhm meron na rin po akong ilang coins na luma. meron akong english series na twenty five cents, ten cents, fifty cents. so far un pa lang ung pinaka luma kong mga coins.. sa banknotes naman.. ung mickey mouse money na piso at 100 pesos lang...

kua, request lang po...bka pwede mo ko padalhan ng libreng lumang banknotes and coins..kahit ung starting bagong lipunan...

tsaka..tanong po, anung edition yung kulay silver na 25cents, parehas din sya nung kulay gold na nasa circulation ngayon, pero bakit kulay silver?

BTW...kung pwede ka pong magpadala, eto po ung address ko Querijero St.,Brgy. 5, Baler, Aurora.

Kenji Mercado said...

2 weeks ago, nagkaroon kami ng project sa Social Studies, mag collect daw ng lumang coins and peso bills..
medyo maganda ung project ko sabi ni sir tapos nakikita ko ung project nung iba, meron silang coins and bills na mas luma sakin
pero hindi impressive ung pagkakapresent nila dun sa project nila, eh ung sakin naka album pa, kya medyo na impress si sir, kasi ung mga info dito ko nakuha sa blog na toh... tapos un na nga, nag decide ako na maging collector na din...hehe.. siguro ngayon, di mahirap mangolekta ng coins kasi maraming website na and nag oofer ng mga ganun.. eh hindi naman namin kayang mag bayad ng para sa ganun... kaya im hoping someone would send me one for free...

The reason why i would like to collect old money and old coins:

i'd like to collect not because of their value, but because of the memories behind those money. ung itay ko lagi nyang kinukwento pag nakikita nya ung luma kong coin na nahingi ko sa kaklase ko, un daw naipambili nya ng kendi kahit tatlong taong na demonitized na. nakalusot sya dun sa tindera...
tapos ung kay nanay naman., ung twenty five cents na english series, un daw ung laging iniiwan ni lola dun sa sewing machine nila nung araw, un na daw ung allowance nya para sa pagpasok nya sa skul,,, tapos un daw mickey mouse money ko, sabi ni itay, nung araw daw kailangan mo ng isang bayong (exagerated term) para makabili ng isang kilong bigas..
tsaka gusto kong mag collect para sa future. pag nagkaanak at apo na ko..maikukwento ko sa kanila ung kinuwento sakin ung itay,nanay at lola ko while showing them the authentic coins and banknotes...

im KENJI MERCADO, from querijero St., brgy.5, baler, aurora

irene said...

magkano po ung 10 centavo guerilla note?

patman said...

Hi. Is there a company here in the Philippines that does small-run commemorative coins? Not sure if the usual companies that have CNC machines are the best to make coins given that coins are usually stamped.

Thanks!

blue_dragonvilla said...

Very nice! Finally, a site about Philippine Coins.

I'm interested in collecting Philippine Commemorative Coins. I have a few, some of it were not featured here yet (those 1 Peso and 2 Peso Coins of the Flora and Fauna Series era). It's been a while since my last commemorative coin, so I'm looking for others. I'd like to buy a new one (or two) soon. If you have recommendations (or questions), please e-mail me at naa.ko.sa.dabaw@gmail.com

Thanks!

Anonymous said...

there's a guy in Recto selling the same spanish coin in decent condition for P350-400 (silver). The coin from ebay may be cheap to the standards of other but you have to consider the additional cost for money transfer (for payment) and postage (for receiving).

Every Peso Counts said...

I was fond of collecting different currencies when I was young and it's very nice to know that someone shares the same interest. I already lost of collection and it's always nice to know something about our history.

greetings to all.
I would first like to thank the writers of this blog by sharing information, a few years ago I read a book called guanacaste costa rica in this book deal with questions like this one.

niz said...

Hello .. firstly I would like to send greetings to all readers. After this, I recognize the content so interesting about this article. For me personally I liked all the information. I would like to know of cases like this more often. In my personal experience I might mention a book called Generic Viagra in this book that I mentioned have very interesting topics, and also you have much to do with the main theme of this article.

Hi!

I'm doing a thesis on Philippine money so I find your blog very useful! I'm also very interested in Philippine money. Is it possible for me to contact you and ask about money? Thanks very much!

Javene Joseph said...

I'm really interested on the Philippine right now. We had a project on the evolution of the Philippine peso on our Economics class (4th year high school). I have them but far from being complete. I'm already in college (3rd year) and I want Philippine peso coins and banknotes as my collection now. This blog will really help me a lot and I just found it just today! Found out that there are still lots to collect and much more to spend. :)

I'm wondering if BSP still has the molder for the old coins. And if they sell old coins and banknotes (I'll earn my weekly allowance for me that).
